I love this tomato salad as a quick side dish when tomatoes are in season. This really isn’t worth making in the winter because the tomatoes won’t have enough flavour. I am probably one of the least picky eaters and I love all vegetables except for cherry tomatoes, unless they’re prepared like this. Once they are cut into small pieces and seasoned I could eat a whole bowl but when they are thrown into a salad whole or cut in half I want nothing to do with them. This is a great side dish to a BBQ dinner, roast chicken, steaks, pasta, whole grilled fish…the list goes on!
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes
- 4 tsp olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, crushed in garlic press
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbsp chopped soft herbs (I like basil and chives but mint, parsley or coriander would work great as well)
Chop tomatoes into quarters or eighths if they are bigger.
Toss with all other ingredients and taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper as necessary.
